B'way star arested for role in Cpitol riot

Broadway star James D. Beeks has been arrested for his involvement in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

The 49-year-old Broadway actor, who most recently played Judas in the U.S. touring production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” was charged with obstruction of Congress and entering a restricted building, according to a complaint from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Investigators say Beeks joined the riots as “an affiliate” of the Oath Keepers, a militant extremist group whose members flooded the Capitol on Jan. 6. He had paid dues to the group two weeks prior to the riot.
